On the evening of March 13, 2023, official One Piece spoilers were revealed, having been approved by Redon and Etenboby, the series’ most prominent leakers. Some of the unsubstantiated spoilers that had been published before the film’s release turned out to be true, although most of them were just as questionable as most viewers had suspected. Fans of One Piece weren’t surprised when the leaks were debunked, but they were stunned by the confirmed spoilers and the events they revealed. Leaks of Chapter 1078 suggest that the Vegapunk traitor is someone who few, if any, fans would have imagined. The traitor’s motivations and goals are also unexpected.
Fans have been clamouring for a complete breakdown of what seems to be a very interesting issue, but at the very least, the verified spoilers have proven themselves to be worth the wait. In this post, we’ll go over all the spoilers for One Piece chapter 1078 that have been verified as of now by the mangaka and author Eiichiro Oda. Vegapunk York is revealed to be a traitor in Chapter 1078 of One Piece, and her desire to become a Celestial Dragon is exposed.
Verified early spoilers
Spoilers for the next One Piece manga issue 1078 begin with specifics about the cover art. The only real description is that “Neo MADS” is established, which is unfortunately not very descriptive. This a possible allusion to the cover of the preceding issue, in which Vinsmoke Judge and Caesar Clown appear to join forces against Dr Vegapunk. Fans might have thought this meant they were on their way to Egghead Island, but it appears to be the birth of the next generation of the MADS outlaw research organisation. Yet, it is by no means certain that they will not show up on Egghead Island at any time in the story arc. The spoilers for the next issue of One Piece suggest that Vegapunk York is the traitor, which would be a surprising change of events given that she has been turned to stone in the most recent chapters. Her goals of becoming the sole Vegapunk and becoming a Celestial Dragon are also stated.
First-look spoilers The reasons for York’s actions are not explored further than what has already been mentioned. Though her reputation as a symbol of Dr Vegapunk’s avarice makes it simple to deduce her motivations, the fact remains that she made this decision. York’s comfortable lifestyle would come to an end if Dr Vegapunk severed connections with the World Government. This also clarifies why she has set her sights on becoming a Celestial Dragon instead of just requesting that the World Government continue making allowances for her. The spoilers continue by saying that in the next issue of One Piece, Franky will still be awake. Yet he can’t move since half his body turned to stone. While it isn’t revealed in the spoilers, the fact that he is still aware of his surroundings is probably how viewers find out about York’s betrayal and her exact goals.
Shifting gears to Sanji vs S-Shark, the first spoilers continue. Contrary to the unverified rumours that Sanji’s kicking the Seraphim had no impact, it has now been shown that S-Shark really punched Sanji in vain. This contrast may seem minor, but it highlights Sanji’s ability to withstand Lunar-level punishment rather than dish it out. Once Redon and Etenboby reveal some details about the next issue of One Piece, the narrator has something to say about what to expect. As they put it, “tomorrow, the consequence of this event (the one taking place in Egghead) will shock the whole planet.” For a number of reasons, including what appears to be the near-term resolution of the Egghead Island arc, this is a very intriguing line. The fact that Big News Morgans is mentioned in connection with an incident that “shook the whole globe” adds credence to the theory that he or she is located on Egghead Island.
The prospect of Princess Vivi Nefertari of Alabasta reconciling with the Straw Hats has also increased. It seems probable that Vegapunk York won’t be coming along on this trip, so Vivi can fill in for him. Regrettably, this is the conclusion of the first round of spoilers, leaving fans of One Piece with a lot of questions. As the week unfolds, we should see the release of spoiler summaries, raw scans, and scanlations for the forthcoming issue.
